What people are saying about Ménerbes

Rent was a great guide. He gave us lots of information and fun stories. The day was long but it was broken up nicely with stops on the drive to see medical villages and historic towns. We got to see many beautiful lavender fields and take al the pics we wanted.

The villages we visited--Gordes, Roussillon, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Saint-Rémy de Provence (even if only partially), Les Baux de Provence, and the Pont du Gard were superb. Our fellow tourists and the guide (Julien) were exceptional.

I had Nicolas all to myself, so evidently the couple hours spent with him were amazing . He knows his history, geography, as well as etymology, AND he was actually able to answer all of my questions! Highly recommendable!

The trip was excellent. The places we have visited are gorgeous. Our tour guide has a perfect planning to this “special” Asian visitors. Big thanks!

We enjoyed the tour very much, Anne is a very good tour guide.
